Filtration and Catalysis

At the core of our business is filtration. We’re a proven innovator of specialty filtration media and catalysis products for demanding applications within the indoor air quality, industrial, and liquid filtration sectors. Our broad knowledge of material science, fiber technology, binder chemistry, and surface science of high-performance products is unique among materials manufacturers. Alkegen’s global footprint allows us to engineer technical nonwoven materials, performance materials, filter bags, and composite products for a wide range of industries that understand market needs to deliver filtration media globally, with a commitment to quality that ensures long-term success for our customers.

And while existing catalysis technology has remained unchanged for the last 40 years, Alkegen is now offering revolutionary fiber-based technologies for industrial applications and automakers.

Delivering true step-change innovation, Alkegen has developed a new fiber-based catalyst media used in industrial catalysis to increase effectiveness with enhanced outputs for any reaction, including hydrogen, industrial emission control, and chemical feedstock applications. Alkegen products help drive lower carbon footprints, allowing companies to meet stricter EPA standards and enhance ESG strategies. Alkegen has taken an important step into automotive catalysis with a new fiber-based nanostructured alumina catalyst technology designed to extend the combustion engine’s life for automotive manufacturers and provide considerable cost savings as the market begins to transition to electric vehicles.

Battery

Better batteries are all about buying time. A more efficient design can beat a battery’s most frustrating challenge: time between charges. Using step-change innovation, we’re driving advances that help extend battery life and accelerate charging time.

Technologies like SiFAB™ (silicon fiber anode battery technology) help battery manufacturers pack more power into a smaller space. When high-power batteries are lighter and smaller, you can squeeze more miles out of automobiles.

From cell-to-cell interstitial thermal barriers to whole-pack electrical protections, Alkegen delivers performance materials to make lithium-based battery packs safer. Alkegen glass mat separation media also provide longer battery life and outstanding performance characteristics.
